Red Flag over Bermondsey
The Ada Salter Story
Written and Performed by Lynn Morris
Directed by Dave Morris
Where to start with Ada Salter? She was a true radical, campaigner for equal rights, socialist, republican, pacifist, environmentalist, trade union activist and a leading light in the transformation of the Bermondsey slums in the early part of the twentieth century.
A day of reflection rooted in silent worship. Come and nourish your spirit and help prepare for what the coming year may bring, or just come and use the quiet time as you are led.
Optional silent activities from different spiritual traditions will be offered, or you might prefer to spend some time journalling or to spend the whole day in an extended meeting for worship in the Quaker tradition.
Please bring something to share for lunch which will be eaten together in silence. We will close the day with some worship-sharing , followed by tea and cake at 4pm.
‘Art Thou in Darkness? Mind it not for if thou dost, it will fill thee more…...’
James Naylor (17th century Quaker)
This 65 minute performance is a result of extensive research into the dark world of state-sanctioned torture and its stark impact on victims, perpetrators, families and those who collude in the ‘process’.
Immersive in style, Feeding the Darkness frames verbatim and ‘faction’ monologues, duologues and poetry as a series of ‘ministries’ which challenge our ignorance and avoidance of this sensitive and disturbing subject.
